REACTION SPHERE

Your best partner toward space

Tensor Tech CO., LTD. has developed Reaction Sphere, a groundbreaking spherical motor technology for satellite attitude control system. With Reaction Sphere, people can replace three motors with only one, this patented technology enables spacecraft to conduct more power-intensive operations and carry more payloads.

We provide our customers with a full-stack service for the ADCS. From mission design and delivery of hardware to integration support, we are not only a key subsystem supplier but also a consulting team for our customers along thier space journey.

What is a Spherical Motor?

A spherical motor is capable of spinning in X, Y, and Z axes. The rotor is supported with a gimbal mechanism and bearings, and a 3D rotating magnetic field is the driving force instead of a 2D rotating magnetic field that powers conventional motors.

can't go to space
without ADCS

Every satellite in orbit requires precise orientation control along the X, Y, and Z axes. This is the so-called attitude control, which is essential for optical sensing satellites and broadband communication satellites. To achieve precise orientation control, we use magnetometer, gyroscope, and fine sun sensors as the attitude determination sub-system. The spherical motor and magnetorquers function as the attitude actuators.

Engineering the Future of new space

There are two obstacles for commercial players seeking to enter the space industry: the cost of launch rockets and building the satellite. While satellite minimization is the key to tackle both issues, the attitude control system, among all sub-systems, is the only remaining system that cannot be shrunk due to the logical limits of physical laws. By adopting Tensor Tech’s solution, the weight, size, and power consumption of the ADCS are reduced by 2/3 compared with traditional systems. Furthermore, our technology could enable the space industry with wider commercial applications by enabling satellite missions to further reduce costs and carry more payloads.
